Saturday was not an especially good day for the Stanford Cardinal.

Not only did the Cardinal lose to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 17-14 after taking a 14-10 lead in the final minutes of the fourth quarter but quarterback Kevin Hogan was injured in the game. Hogan was able to finish the game but many have questioned whether or not Kevin Hogan will be bale to go this week.

Stanford head coach David Shaw sounds like he expects to have Kevin Hogan.

“All things point toward him hopefully being ready (for WSU),” said coach David Shaw, who did not reveal the specifics of Hogan’s injury (i.e., thigh, knee, ankle or foot) via Jon Wilner of The San Jose Mercury News.

“We were aware of it. There was no fear of further injury. He still had full range of motion. He still had full strength.

“After you play the game, it gets really sore, and that’s where he is. But we feel good about him being ready.”

Washington State and Stanford will kick-off from Stanford Stadium at 9:00 pm EST Friday. The game is on ESPN.
